The Miami-Dade Chapter of the Florida Association of Women Lawyers recently honored Ira Leesfield with the “2015 Friend of FAWL Award” for his continued support of the organization and commitment to promote gender equality in the legal profession.

Almost 20 years ago, Leesfield, through the Leesfield Family Foundation, endowed the Leesfield/FAWL scholarship for the benefit of minority law students who distinguished themselves for their commitment to trial advocacy and public justice.   The event took place on June 18, 2015 at FAWL’s “Annual Installation Dinner” held in Jungle Island, Miami, FL.
